an t anticipated. numbers show romney stalling out during hurricane sandy the week of the election then coming back in the final days of the race. he said we thought we had in the last 72 hours of the campaign made up some of the ground from the challenging messaging period during the hurricane. that moment never really materialized, unfortunately, and romney went on to loose. the question is why? nate cohen and alex wagner, thank you guys both for being here. >> thanks, ezra. >> nate, let me begin with you on the poll. what can we learn here? you went through all of the polling in the combine. what was your conclusion when you found out far off the romney campaign got it. >> well you have to understand that it is so much worse than public polling. obama is shown 5.2 points worse than he did. the public poll shows obama performing 2 points worse. so they are showing 3.2 points worse than public polls, not paid by the romney campaign to produce the right answers. the second thing, is their explanation doesn't really line up. they didn't show diverse states like florida or virginia.
